Karen Kraushaar

Karen Kraushaar is one of the first two women who anonymously accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment while the GOP candidate was with the National Restaurant Association some years ago. The 55-year-old Kraushaar, who serves as a spokeswoman for the Treasury Department, decided to reveal her identity today after another accuser, Sharon Bialek, came out yesterday with sexual assault accusations toward Cain.

“When you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, you are extremely vulnerable,” Kraushaar said. “You do whatever you can to quickly get yourself into a job some place safe, and that is what I thought I had achieved when I left.”
